Uric-X™ combines Terminalia bellerica and tart cherry fruit (Prunus cerasus) to help maintain healthy blood uric acid levels. Terminalia bellerica is a deciduous tree common in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Its fruit and kernel oil have been employed in Ayurvedic and Unani (Greek) medical traditions since ancient times. Terminalia bellerica’s primary mechanism of action is inhibition of xanthine oxidase, an enzyme involved in the synthesis of uric acid. Cherries contain high levels of anthocyanins providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects,* and cherry intake may reduce serum uric acid levels and plasma creatinine.
The accumulation of crystallized uric acid within the joints may result in gout, an extremely painful and debilitating form of arthritis. Hyperuricemia (elevated serum uric acid levels) is sometimes asymptomatic, but in many individuals it leads to symptoms of gout.* Prevalence of both gout and hyperuricemia have increased over the years in the US.
